I reported this sentence as wrong because of the verb form. As far as I know, it just doesn't exist in the paradigm of the Modern Irish verb. What is needed here is taistealaíonn.
There is a problem with the verb taistil in this course. I saw two more forms that were incorrect in this lesson (1 sg and 1 pl).
Help me out here. Where does the "Do" come in, other than the interrogatory mark at the end of the sentence?
Is the dt ever used in speaking? My teacher always said to leave it out even though it is technically correct
Where was your teacher from? As far as I know, "dt" is pronounced as "d" in all of the main dialects
Perhaps that was some confusion over context. There are words like codladh where the d is silent; but in eclipsis like here, the first letter (or pair of letters in the case of bh) is always pronounced in replacement of the root word's starting letter - d instead of t in this case.
